Types of Drug Offenses

In California, a drug crime involves any unlawful use or possession of a controlled substance.

There are several different types of drug offenses, including:

  • Possession
  • Possession with intent to sell or distribute
  • Drug distribution or sale
  • Trafficking
  • Cultivation or manufacturing
  • Prescription fraud or forgery

Penalties for Drug Crimes in California

Drug laws change over the years, but one thing remains constant: These crimes are severely punished, regardless of whether they are charged as misdemeanors or as felonies.

Drug crime penalties can include fines, jail time, mandatory drug treatment, license suspension, and restricted gun rights. A drug conviction will also remain permanently on your criminal record, which could lead to problems getting a job, applying for a loan, or finding housing.

The specific consequences for a drug offense depend upon several factors, including:

  • The nature of the crime
  • The amount of the substance involved
  • The place where the drug offense occurred
  • The defendant’s criminal history
